Fire Blight Treatment in Denver
Fire Blight is a bacteria that attacks fruit trees. It can gain access the tree if damage or trimming takes place in the summer months when the bacteria is active. Once infected a tree can look crispy, with brown patches in the leave that looks like it has been burned. The good news is that Fire Blight can be treated!
At Bailey Tree LLC, we provide a three stage program for Fire Blight infected trees. First, we trim only in the winter months as to not encourage the spread of the bacteria. Second, we offer an anti-bacterial agent that causes the bacteria to not reproduce. Third, we provide a support for any relapse.
With proper care your fruit trees can be back to looking and feeling their best soon! Call us to help treat your trees!
